Mini Sheller Review Page 3
Enter and Exit Roller Guards
As with the Little Sheller, the Mini Sheller has metal guards on both sides of the rollers. The guards are easy to put on and easy to adjust.
The belt guard really stands out in the black plastic. I like it much better than the metal belt guard on the Little Sheller. Once installed it is unlikely that anyone would need to take it off as the belt will last decades even under heavy use.
As we've already discussed, the motor is grounded with a 3-prong plug to prevent shock or fire. The fan-cooled motor is thermal protected.
This is about as idiot-proof as a 50 year-old design is going to get. There are 10's of thousands of Little Sheller Pea Shellers
in use, I've not heard of one serious accident. Taylor really does give safety a high priority.
Some people want an instruction book the size of a novel. In its simplest form:
Step 1. Set Mini Sheller on a sturdy table.
Step 2. Plug-in to 3-prong properly wired outlet.
Step 3. Turn on
Step 4. Push peas length-wise until rollers grab the pea hulls.
Step 5. Repeat step 4 until complete.
Step 6. Turn off Mini Sheller.
Step 7. Unplug Mini Sheller from outlet.
Step 8. Clean with damp rag.
Step 9. Store in a closet or sturdy shelf.
Step 10. Brag about it to everyone you meet and tell them to get it at PeaSheller.net. Specs:
